IRA Rollover Passes For 2010 and 2011
Has Your IRA Benefited from Years of Growth?
Consider This Simple, Easy Way to Make a Gift to ECHO in 2010 or 2011
If you are like many individuals, your IRA has increased in value over the years and you may have more income than you need. The IRA rollover gift is a simple and easy way to provide for ECHO while not increasing your taxable income.
If you are over age 70½, you may annually gift any amount up to $100,000 of your IRA to charity. It's very easy to make the gift by directing your custodian to transfer a portion of your required minimum distribution directly to charity. ECHO receives a nice gift and you avoid any additional tax.
